Transition to School : Kinder to Prep

We realise the importance of a smooth transition for children when they enter our school and throughout their school life. Each year is a time of transition for your child and we run a series of programs to support them in settling in and feeling confident about school.

This is a time of major change for children (and their families) and presently our program includes an Orientation Program that takes place during November/December. The children have an opportunity to attend a prep class for four Wednesdays for one hour. They will rotate around the four classrooms having a session with a different current prep teacher. Each week the activity will be something different. The program is designed to give the children a taste of what a Prep classroom is like and to become familiar with some of the important areas around the school. Then in December another final transition session will be held whereby classes will have been formed and a teacher placed with the class. On this final transition session they will meet their teacher and class for the following year.

There is an opportunity for parents to meet the teachers, the Principal and the Assistant Principal both formally and informally. There will be information sessions held for parents while the children are in their transition session. These information sessions are based around literacy and numeracy, wellbeing and general information specific to PVNPS.

We know that strong positive relationships form the core of a child’s successful time at school and we try to ensure that we use this time to lay the foundations for a wonderful 7 years at our school.

Buddy System

Each Prep is introduced to a Grade 5 or 6 student during the final prep transition session who will be their buddy for the transition to school. Usually it is on a one to one basis but at times there may be two children who share the responsibility. The idea of the buddies is to provide a senior school child for each prep child, who will help them in their transition from home/ kinder to school. The buddies are allocated during the final Prep Orientation session. Buddies wear brightly coloured hats so that they are easily spotted by the preps. During the first couple of weeks the buddies help preps find their way around school and to their lines, they help them get organized for playtime and lunchtime and generally look out for them in the yard. They try to provide a positive role model. The buddies initially stay with the preps in the yard for a few days at which time they encourage them to play with other preps. This support is reduced gradually.
